Red Snapper Tomato is a hybrid, determinate tomato variety with consistent fruit set in warmer conditions. It has an excellent disease-resistance package including resistance to Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus and Tomato Yellow Leaf Curl Virus. Red Snapper produces large to extra-large, round fruits. Fruits are deep red with a delicious flavor. Red Snapper Tomato is an extremely productive variety with a bush-growing habit.

Fruits have a remarkable shelf-life once harvested which makes this a great variety for the backyard gardener or small-scale market farmer. Plants benefit from pruning early.
Tomatoes are in the nightshade family along with peppers and eggplant. Plants in the nightshade family are susceptible to blossom end rot, which is a result of a calcium deficiency. To prevent or alleviate this problem, apply pelleted gypsum at the base of the plant at the bloom set.
